Document No. 10—Jack Pierson’s Automatic Watercolors

Artwork by Jack Pierson

This is what came out when I did not have a plan or did not say no to an impulse. Asemic watercolors done under a spell. An amusement on a summer morning, hopefully a less studied version of my “branded” creativity. It had been awhile since I was involved in old-fashioned hand work and I thought it would be helpful to “free my mind” if I sat and painted a little each day. Yoga for the brain. —Jack Pierson
